Comprehensive General Liability insurance for a wide range of businesses
It’s fair to say that if your activity’s interact with the public on a daily basis or their business activities are performed in a public area, they’ll need public liability cover.


Employers’ Benefits liability insurance
As an employer you are responsible for the health and safety of your employees whilst they are at work. Should your employees be injured at work or become ill as a result they may be able to claim compensation. Employer’s liability insurance enables you to meet the cost of compensation awarded to injured employees as well as associated legal costs.


Errors & Omissions indemnity protects against compensation claims There is no limit in Canada as to how much a compensation claim could be. This means a serious case could be in the thousands or even millions. Professional indemnity insurance protects you by covering the cost of a claim for compensation. But even if a court case is unsuccessful, you can also claim back the cost of defense in court, and receive legal advice through-out the process.


Tenants Legal Liability
Tenants Legal Liability (TLL) covers you for legal liability in cases where the tenant causes fire damage to the rented property. If you rent a portion of your facilities and have a fire then the ten-ant legal liability will cover the damages to the area they occupy.


Faulty Workmanship
Most insurance policies won’t cover the fixing of faulty workmanship or even the damage that is caused, or even aggravated, by faulty workmanship. Faulty workmanship is manufacturing or installation that is done poorly or incorrectly. This faulty workmanship can show up as a leaky roof, buckling walls, or bad wiring.

Pollution is often viewed as something that happens to “other” companies – the ones who deal in hazardous materials and contaminants. The fact is, most businesses (and even most individuals) could become polluters. Policies written by CHES Special Risk Inc., are extended to include the risk of Sudden and Accidental Pollution.


Property & Installation Coverages
